by bruce springsteen, bon jovi and billy joel will air on nbc tonight. climate change failed to become a major headline story in the presidential election... until now. in the aftermath of hurricane sandy, new york mayor michael bloomberg noted the summer drought, melting ice caps and rising temputures as reasons to take action on climate change. then on thursday in a stunning move, bloomberg endorsed president obama, citing his record on climate change issues such as raising fuel emissions standards. meanwhile, gop vice presidential candidate paul ryan suggests taking another route. his idea is to drill for oil in the arctic, then invest the profits in renewable energy. consumers proved to be in a spending mood this october. the international council of shopping centers says retailers are reporting modest gains for the month. costco was one of those stores, with sales rising 7% from the same time last year. macy's' same-store sales popped 4.1%, while target saw a smaller increase of 2.4% - lower than analyst expectations. however, superstorm sandy remains a concern going forward. ana

for hurricane sandy victims. matt lauer was the host. bruce springsteen, jon bon jovi, and billy joel helped raise money. we'll show you some highlights. >> it was quite a show. >>> we are also live on the campaign trail as president obama and governor romney crisscross the country with just three days to go now until election day. with the race neck and neck, we'll take a look at how hurricane sandy and friday's job numbers could affect the race. we want to begin with the aftermath of hurricane sandy. we have complete coverage for you this morning from the clean to -up to the gas and food lines. we begin with the cancellation of the new york city marathon for the first time in its history. stephanie gosk. >> reporter: new york has been holding the marathon since 1970. this is the first time it's been cancelled. but since the moment mayor michael bloomberg said it was going to be cancelled, the anger started to grow. it was just among the victims, it was also their public officials, a number of them, and even runners themselves that were beginning to feel and worried that some of the researc
. for the record bruce springsteen is registered in new jersey -- >> i'm take bruce springsteen over meatloaf any way of the week. >> and james harden has been sent packing, he is headed to the houston rockets, because houston was able to offer harden a contract that oklahoma city simply could not. >> i don't get it. i don't know why they would do that. he was backbone of the team. he showed up big time for them. i don't know why they would get rid of him. >> bill: don't ask me. all right. jamal let's get to the other big storm of the day. there is an election a week from tomorrow. i was watching the nbc news and they said our latest polls -- and it was another national tracking pal that showed mitt romney ahead. why is america paying so much tenths to the national tracking polls? do they mean anything? >> no. there clearly was a trend towards mitt romney five weeks ago, we were all pretty happy about the obama polls. i think right now there was clearly a trend towards mitt romney after the first debate, that looks like it has stalled out, where most of us thought a year a

this evening and now bruce springsteen is going to be in madison on monday. is the campaign worried or are they just making sure? >> i don't think they're worried, the mar ket law school poll has him up by 8 points in wisconsin. i think it's a nice way to close your campaign having tens and thousands of people cheering for the president these days. i think that's why he's here for those great video clips. >> senator, why hasn't paul ryan delivered wisconsin in the polls? the polling has never been favorable for the romney examp and i think we can come to the conclusion just 50 hours away from election day that paul ryan doesn't seem to have had a big impact, if any, on the state of wisconsin. what do you make of that? >> i recall when he first is chose paul ryan. the question was how did we feel about it. one of the things i said we were excited, those of us in wisconsin, for one reason or another. from the democrat's perspective because we knew that paul ryan really does not connect with the values of wisconsin. and him willing to some say put grandmother over on the cliff with a v

will be interested to know, bruce springsteen used to go jogging down this street where you see the water. >> where we see the kayaker. >> reporter: down to the beach every morning. yeah. we have met the kayaker and seen him at work today. but i can tell you right now out on the beach, they're really at work and what they're trying to do is pump two inland lakes they have in this town, pump them out to where they came from and they're doing that with huge pumps. some of them deployed after katrina. they're pumping right now i think 700,000 gallons an hour. they hope later by later today they'll be pumping some 2 million gallons an hour. they're attacking this right now. at the same time, they try to push the debris out of their city. >> any idea, jim, how long that will take, that process of pumping it out? >> no. i don't really know how long it will take. because, you know, they're going to pump basements out. there's a high school near here. pumping that basement out. their gymnasium and back in to it so all the water's going to come out of the homes in to those lakes even as those lakes are bein
of all this he did get a mention from bruce springsteen who he's a big fan of and he's actually said in a concert, this is true, and said the governor has -- >> someone said, some conservative on twitter said that's what this is all about! he said it wasn't about -- it's not about mitt romney or anything to get to obama. >> this is interesting thinking about why is it that the public doesn't -- the public would not tolerate a republican governor saying i am not going to accept money from the federal government to help get the lights back on. we will suffer through this as a state. >> right. >> and eschew any help, people wouldn't stand for it. but they will stand for it when the help is about something a little less immediate. if a republican governor said we're turning down this money to fix our schools or unemployment. >> or to build high speed rail. >> or high speed rail. >> internet. >> when the republican governor turns that money down, people don't see the immediate consequences and they don't seem to react. but imagine what they would do if chris christie had stood up and said
